Regardless of a child’s learning challenges, Rising Stars Tutoring helps pave the way for academic success and teaches skills that last a lifetime.
As a child, Allison did not always enjoy school. In fact, she could not wait to finish school and be done with it, until she had a few amazing teachers that saw her true potential and taught her the way she needed to learn. Allison has a passion for educating children to help make a difference. So, she became a teacher and loved being around the students, educating, and making an impact of children’s lives. Allison also realized while teaching that many children required more one-to-one attention than there was time for in a day. Many students were not at the level they should have been at. She wanted to provide an education that was more individualized for each student.
Allison Barnow founded Rising Stars Tutoring because she has a special place in her heart to dedicate to children that require one-to-one learning and who need a different style of education to be successful. Allison wanted to reach out and help students who, like she did, need non-conventional learning that is difficult to get in a regular ed classroom. Rising Stars was established to provide children with the individualized learning they need to become successful lifelong learners who love math, reading and learning.
Allison has a wealth of experience working with children for 15 plus years of all ages and ability levels. She is an experienced certified teacher, who taught fourth grade, second grade, and third grade. During her years of teaching, she was able to work with a diverse group of students with ability levels that ranged all across the learning spectrum. Also, each year she was provided the luxury of learning and implementing many programs into the classroom after being trained, such as 6 Traits of Writing, DIBELS, Enriching the Gifted Student, and Best Reading Practices.
Experience working in a diverse classroom setting provided Allison the ability to adjust her teaching methodologies to give students individualized learning.
Allison enjoys making learning fun through multi-sensory learning. Being an experienced teacher, gives Allison the knowledge of what a child is capable of learning at each grade level and the skills to use with children to enhance their learning at any academic ability. Also, she is familiar with educational terms and programs, which allow her to be an advocate for the families she works with.
